First Weekend for the Boys

Didier & Rodrigo enjoy Jenga with a smile.


A quick photo of some of the boys from the boarding community before racing off to race each other down the slides in the aqua park today.

Leonardo walks away smiling after figuring out the code for the escape game in a short time.

Diego was up early and happy to be returning to school on Thursday morning to catch up with some of his friends once again since they parted ways for holidays in June.

Sunday morning Brunch

Leonardo, Rodrigo, Hamza and Didier finished the weekend with a smile.



Welcome back dinner ✨

Showcasing our first International dinner of the year, and what a dinner it was! ⭐

As always, we kick start the year with a traditional Swiss meal so that we can introduce all the different cultures from our growing community to the type of food enjoyed here in Switzerland 🧀

Everyone got to enjoy a selection of Switzerland’s finest, including:

  • Mini fondue bowls, served in fresh crusty bread rolls
  • Assortment of cheeses from the local regions
  • A platter of locally sourced cured meats
  • Mini Swiss burgers with Gruyère cheese
  • And plenty more Swiss delicacies

For dessert, we got to enjoy macaroons decorated with the Swiss flag, served with a selection of homemade Swiss desserts. But the real showstopper was the chocolate fountain! After all, the Swiss are know for their chocolate! 🍫

The dining hall was filled with Swiss related decorations, even the napkins has Swiss flags on them! All in all, it was a lovely way to welcome new and returning students back to Switzerland 🎉✨🎇

Welcome back! 🎉

Welcome to the new school year of 2023 – 2024! ✨⭐

The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming and we can’t wait to welcome you back to Collège du Léman! 🌸

Here at CDL, we have just opened two new outside villas to support the growing boarding community, one of which is located next door but one to Louis Degallier 56, therefore we have new neighbours! Ronan and Philip (pictured below) will be running Louis Degallier 60, a beautiful villa which will house 7 senior boys. And given that we are neighbours, we will both be using this blog to update you on all of the wonderful boarding experiences enjoyed by the students within our two houses!

So, without further ado, we welcome all our new students & families, our transitioning students & families, and of course our returning students & families to our little Louis Degallier community ❤

We wish you all a successful start to the year ✨
